NEWADA

NEWADA, Network of Danube Waterway Administrations aimed at increasing the efficiency of the Danube as the European Transport Corridor VII by intensifying cooperation between waterway administrations to promote inland navigation as a cost-effective and environmentally friendly mode of transport. Project activities included:
- cooperation on hydrological and hydrographical tasks was intensified in order to achieve a higher impact. The efficiency of daily work was increased through the exchange of know-how among experts as well as through the identification of best practice cases.
- physical accessibility of the waterway infrastructure was improved. National action plans, feasibility studies, bilateral projects and implementation guidelines for improving waterway maintenance and river engineering were worked out in cooperation with other Danube countries.
- access to ICT (Information and Communication Technology) networks and services was enhanced in order to overcome shortcomings. Up-to-date waterway related data was provided to waterway administrations of neighbouring countries, third parties and users.
- responsible stakeholders were integrated and cooperation was fostered. The communication between waterway administrations, development agencies and Ministries of Transport was enhanced. Waterway administrations were transformed into service oriented organisations in order to meet user demands.

NEWADA started in April 2009 and ended in March 2012 with a duration of 36 months.
Project team was comprised of 12 project partners from 8 Danube countries.
